5 Years on WordPress

I have received a notification of the anniversary. Exactly 5 years ago, I started my blog. Actually, I was pushed by my friends who said that I made nice pictures and had interesting stories to tell. They believed in me way more than I believed in myself. Yet, I decided to give it a try.

The first year was not that active, it was more of a pilot. On the opposite, 2016 and 2017 were the most active years online so far, especially while staying in Portugal. Sometimes, I could hardly hold myself from posting several entries per day, and sometimes I couldn’t squeeze a single sentence out of myself.

Although my original idea was to write about trips, I included my observations about cultures, my memories from childhood and of some events in my life. I was surprised that so many people turned out to be interested in my writings, I received so much support and encouragement. Sometimes, I felt more comfortable to share my stories here than to the people next to me in real life.

Dear friends, thank you for being with me in this blogging journey! 🤗❤️
